DM® 3.0 Sets the New Digital Standard for Every Room
Posted on Tuesday, February 3, 2015
Four core digital standards
embedded in DigitalMedia™ product line transforms AV distribution
and AV industry yet again.
February 2, 2015 – Crestron stand #2-C-24 is sure to be the hub
of activity at Integrated Systems Europe 2015 in Amsterdam, February 10–12,
with the establishment of the new DM 3.0 standard, and live demonstrations of
more DigitalMedia™ 4K products. DM is still the only end-to-end 4K
certified distribution solution.
“A decade ago, Crestron laid the foundation for DigitalMedia, the AV
distribution technology that would go on to transform the industry. Today DM
3.0, the new digital standard for every room, does it again,” says Fred
Bargetzi, Chief Technology Officer at Crestron. “DM 3.0 is four core digital
standards: uncompressed bit-for-bit 4K/60 distribution and scaling, streaming
AV, enterprise-class IT solution, and end-to-end scalable solutions for every
Crestron will be debuting the following new DM 4K products at ISE 2015, each of
which meet one or more requirement of the DM 3.0 standard:
World’s first and
only 4K/60 Hz scaler
What makes the cutting-edge 4K DigitalMedia Receiver & Room Controller
(DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C) unique is its exclusive
scaler chip, developed at the Crestron Research Center. Other AV companies
simply don’t have this capability. As a result, the technology can’t be found
anywhere else. The scaler can convert any resolution and frame rate to any other
resolution and frame rate, up to 4096x2160 at 60 Hz.
The all-new 3-Series® 4K DigitalMedia Presentation System (DMPS3-4K-150-C) delivers 4K switching and
scaling with simple setup powered by exclusive new Crestron .AV Framework™.
It combines DM technology with an IP-based 3-Series Control System®,
10X1 4K/60 switcher, mic mixer, and audio DSP. The exclusive built-in 4K scaler
converts any resolution and frame rate to any other resolution and frame rate,
up to 4096x2160/30.
transmitter and receiver
Both the Wall Plate 4K DigitalMedia Transmitter (DM-TX1-4K-C-1G) and Wall Plate 4K DigitalMedia
Receiver (DM-RX1-4K-C-1G) are powered over DM, so all
you need is a single cable. Using CEC, many devices can be controlled right
through their HDMI® connections, eliminating the need for serial
cables or IR emitters.
Available in both black and white, both devices utilize a
standard electrical box for tidy, discreet installation.
4K HDBaseT® input cards
The 4K DigitalMedia Input Card for DM Switchers (DMC-4K-C) and 4K DigitalMedia Input Card
w/Downmixing for DM Switchers (DMC-4K-C-DSP) provide a single DM or HDBaseT
input for any DM switcher with modular input card slots, and handles 4K and
Ultra HD video resolutions. Available with a DSP for stereo downmixing of
multichannel input signals to enable simultaneous distribution of multichannel
and 2-channel audio.
4K HDMI output cards
The 2-Channel 4K DigitalMedia Output Card for DM Switchers (DMC-4K-HDO)
provides two 4K HDMI outputs and two balanced audio outputs with volume
DM Ultra Cable
DigitalMedia™ Ultra Cable, Low Smoke Zero Halogen (DM-CBL-ULTRA-LSZH) meets the requirements for
use in Europe per IEC 60332-1 specifications. It’s proven to deliver error-free 4K HDMI signals
via HDBaseT over longer distances than other category cables. DM Ultra Cable is
the only cable that exceeds HDMI specification, which allows fewer than one
pixel error per billion, for HDBaseT distribution of 4K content up to 100
meters. A CAT7a shielded twisted pair cable, it’s engineered to deliver optimum
performance for 10 gigabit Ethernet; perfect for any application that requires
high-performance category cable.
4K HDMI distribution
The 1-to-2 4K HDMI Distribution Amplifier (HD-DA2-4K-E), 1-to-4 4K HDMI Distribution
Amplifier (HD-DA4-4K-E), and 1-to-8 4K HDMI Distribution
Amplifier (HD-DA8-4K-E) split one 4K HDMI source to two,
four, or eight separate outputs, respectively.
“These new products offer further proof that no other solution can compete with
the complete package you get with DM,” added Bargetzi. “DM 3.0 is more than
just the industry standard.
